A welcome addition to the Yamaha Disklavier family, the MPX1Z adds the privacy and convenience of Silent System performance, along with the ability to combine 'Silent' Mode and Disklavier functions in an exciting variety of ways. A simple shift of the center pedal keeps the hammers from striking the strings - silencing the instrument to other ears - while delivering superb, real-time digital reproduction through stereo headphones.
Treat Your Ears to the Ultimate in Musical Fidelity
The vast library of Yamaha PianoSoft™ disks offers prerecorded concerts by many of the world's most popular and respected pianists, performed with truly remarkable precision — complete with exact key and pedal movement — right on the piano itself. PianoSoft Plus™ ensemble disks augment this acoustic performance with the rich realism of digital orchestration, through the internal tone generator and simple connection to your own amplified speakers.
Explore Creative Horizons
Students, teachers and developing artists have rapidly come to appreciate the advantages of Disklavier 'piano plus' versatility. Its direct recording and playback capabilities, along with features like dual left and right-hand recording and playback, help make learning more effective...and more fun! There's even a built-in metronome to help you keep the beat.
Silent System™ versatility
The MPX1Z also integrates Yamaha Silent System advantages, extending your opportunities for enjoyment. By allowing you to deactivate the acoustic sound and play in digital piano mode through stereo headphones, this makes it possible to play or practice at any time in total privacy, a major advantage for students, urban residents and late-night musicians. You can also record, listen to recordings or play along with accompaniment in 'Silent' Mode, or enjoy the MPX1Z in 'Quiet' Mode through your own amplified speakers. And the ability to cancel the piano's sound and play instrumental tones independently makes it ideal for multi-track recording.
Dual Stereo Headphone Jacks
With Privacy mode engaged, you continue to play normally, only now the sound, rather than resonating from the strings and soundboard, is reproduced through stereo headphones. Digitally sampled from the Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand, the tones are rich, full and responsive throughout their full tonal and dynamic range, offering you an astoundingly realistic playing experience...in complete privacy! The dual headphone jacks allow you to share the experience with another person if you wish.
XG Internal Tone Generator
The sophisticated tone generation module gives you instant access to a full spectrum of instrumental accompaniment. It's built right into the new Disklavier control unit, so you can easily record the sounds of other instruments or play back fully orchestrated piano/ensemble concerts through the Disklavier and your own amplified speakers. You can even adjust the balance between piano and ensemble volume to get exactly the mix you want.
A Major Advance in Digital Music Technology
Yamaha's XG format extends General MIDI standards to include nearly 700 instrumental and percussion voices (480 accessible from the front panel), with enhanced control and CD-quality sound.
Versatile Playback Functions
Search and select functions make it easy to find the music you want to hear. You can control the volume to suit the occasion, adjust the tempo without affecting the pitch, change the key to play or sing along, and repeat any song or passage. With L/R recorded disks, you can even listen to the left or right hand part alone, or play one hand while the piano plays the other!
Using an advanced system of fiber-optic sensors, Disklavier pianos can capture any player's performance right from the keyboard itself. The internal Memory Disk lets you record and playback compositions using the instrument's own flash memory, or record onto standard 3.5" 2DD or 2HD floppy disks for unlimited capacity and easy portability. L/R dual recording lets you record left and right parts independently or simultaneously.
Personal Computer Interface
With a simple cable connection, you can link the magic of your Disklavier piano to the power of your personal computer. You can store and edit performances on your computer's hard drive or other media, play the Disklavier MPX1Z from your PC, download music files from the Internet, or take advantage of today's advanced software for 'desktop music' and computer-aided composition.
Comprehensive Utility Functions
A wide variety of supporting features — including formatting, copying, titling and conversion functions — are built into the Disklavier MPX1Z, providing exceptional flexibility, convenience and control. A proprietary Self-Maintenance system provides automatic calibration, keeping your instrument in factory-fresh adjustment for maximum playback sensitivity.
Easy Operational Control
Despite its technological sophistication, Disklavier operation is simple and intuitive. A large, multi-function LCD panel displays settings, menus and operational guidance. And the majority of functions can be accessed both at the control unit and via remote control.

Yamaha Servicebond™ Assurance Program
